I ordered a new laptop yesterday. Phil has had her laptop – an old Sony Vaio – for about six years now, and it’s showing signs of aging. Actually, to be more precise, it was showing signs of aging three years ago (when we got married). It only has 256 megs of RAM, with a fairly small / slow hard disk – which means it crawls along when trying to do anything more complicated than… well, it crawls along no matter what you do.
We’ve been talking about getting a new one for a long time, but I finally decided enough was enough and ordered a shiny new Dell Inspiron yesterday. I managed to get a fairly decent deal (I think) – dual core Intel processor with 4GB RAM and a 250GB hard disk for around £400. OK, I probably could have got a better deal by shopping around, but I like Dell – my old company used to buy loads of stuff from them and we never had any problems. I’ve had a Dell desktop PC for about four years now and, again, had no problems with it.
So, that should be arriving within the next two weeks, rather exciting 🙂
The other thing I wanted to mention is the BioLogos website. BioLogos was established by Francis Collins (director of the Human Genome project), and contains lots of interesting information about science and faith. I found the questions on the fall of man and Noah’s ark particularly helpful.
So if you have an interest in Christianity and science, I would recommend it! 🙂
